Remin’Action Workshop

The Remin’Action workshop was developed with groups of seniors to meet their direct needs. It has been designed for ALL the people who revolve around seniors and helps them organize and structure reminiscence groups for seniors with various autonomy levels.

Reminiscence groups offer more than simple conversations about “back in the day.” They provide the foundation for comprehensive discussions on popular subjects with the help of visual, olfactory and sensory tools.

It’s a program developed to help you organize and lead a senior’s reminiscence workshop. These sessions are very therapeutic for them as they encourage social interactions, enhance self-esteem, help preserve cultural heritage and enables them to make a positive life summary.

The great strength of this workshop is its ability to create a shared sense of community among residents. We all know the negative mental impacts of isolation in seniors and this new social dimension will certainly bring them comfort.

The Workshop

The Remin’Action workshop is especially useful in helping with the technical side of organizing a group, providing many details such as who should attempt the activity, how many participants there should be, when, where, and how it should take place, etc.

Also, it is full of advice on how to improve communication with people with dementia in order to get more out of them in a group setting. The secret of Remin’Action is in the use of the right triggers when doing reminiscence activities. The Remin’Action guide has more than 100 detailed activities to support you in the successful creation of your own reminiscence group.
